Mokorotlo hat avaYou can find the image of this traditional straw hat on the Lesotho flag and on Lesotho license plates – that’s how important it is for the local culture. It’s the national symbol of Lesotho and not just a piece of clothing. The locals even display it in their homes to show their connection with the national culture and indigenous religion. The Lesotho people believe that a mokorotlo protects them from evil.
